Example text

In “normal” cases, the categories of understanding and perception that constitute a habitus, being congruous with the objective organization of the field, tend to reproduce the very structures of the field. Not so when the field constantly organizes and reorganizes itself, with “agents” unwillingly thrown into it struggling to survive and adapt. Second, in the case of Israeli individuals who had spent their youth fighting in underground movements only to find themselves barred from public office upon the establishment of the state, the participants’ aspirations and demands were far “higher” than what existing conditions merited.

His Western counterpart Gerard of Cremona (1114–1187) is renowned for a similar role — having preserved and disseminated Greek works by translating them “The sheikh of the translators” into Latin — yet Gerard worked a full three centuries later, and did not author his own works. This article looks at the translation work of Hunayn ibn Ishaq, about whom very little has been written in general and in English in particular. The four main English-language articles on the figure, Michael Cooperson’s “The Purported Autobiography of Hunayn ibn Ishaq” (1997), Rosanna Gorini’s “The Process of Origin and Growth of Islamic Medicine: The Role of the Translators” (2005), Max Meyerhof’s “New Light on Hunain ibn Ishaq and his Period” (1926), and DW Tschanz’s “A Glimpse on the Figure of Hunayn bin Ishaq” (2003), examine a particular incident in Hunayn’s relationship with the Caliph, Hunayn’s medical works, a list of Hunayn’s main benefactors and book titles, and Hunayn’s general and life history, respectively.

In this respect, they are in no way similar to the peripheral dissidents in a democratic regime, where highly-valued literature — in terms of cultural capital — was translated and published by the mainstream. The latter could not take pride in the “cheap” material they translated and published, nor was the establishment ever interested enough in them to grant them the status of an “opposition” or to try to censure them. They did not fit into the category of resistant activists either, for they had left their activist days behind.
